Despite a tight state budget, key legislators say the state may pursue plans to create a so-called “Destination” State Park. Jeff Lamberti of Ankeny is the republican who leads the Senate Appropriations Committee. Lamberti says legislators may agree to spend some money to draw up plans for the park, but won’t go full bore on the project yet.Tom Flynn of Dubuque, the top democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, agrees the park is a long-term goal.Flynn and Lamberti made their comments during taping of Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press”. The idea behind a “destination park” is to create a facility where people can go and find enough outdoor activities for a week, while staying in a cabin rather than a tent.
